Any PFB (Postscript) or TTF font is scalable. Stuff in the speedo
directory is too. Anything .pcf is bitmap.
I wouldn't recommend removing those directories... some programs may
hardcode fonts and require stuff there (usually "fixed"). Instead,
what I do is set every application/toolkit/whatever I use to use
scalable fonts. It's a long list of places to change, but won't break
Many programs accept X resources for this:
Emacs.font: -monotype-courier new-medium-r-normal-*-*-95-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1
others have other means of configuration, like .gtkrc or the KDE
control panel. That way, you can minimize use of bitmap fonts and
